Abstract

Field experiment was conducted duimg 1997–98 and 1998–99 to study the effect of P sources and levels on the quality parameters of sunflower and cowpea fodder in a maize-sunflower cowpea fodder cropping system. The results revealed that, SSP at 75% recommended level of P2O5 and P application for maize and sunflower improved the quality parameters and seed yield of sunflower. SSP at 75% recommended level of P2O5 increased the crude protein content. MRP at 50% of the recommended level of P205 increased crude fibre content. Phosphorus when applied for all the crops in the system increased the crude protein content and fodder yield, and decreased the crude fibre content.
